What we're about

Wednesdays are for Writers has undergone some significant changes. First, we will no longer be meeting every other week. Instead, we'll feature monthly presentations by local authors to other writers, readers, friends and colleagues. These events are designed to be intimate conversations between presenters and the audience on the creative process as well as the work itself. Up coming events include radio plays, film scripts as well as novels and non-fiction work.

We think these changes will suit our audience better and allow us to present programs that are of more interest to all. Monthly programs will be announced at the beginning of the month.

Meetings will still be held at the Eastgate Cafe, 102 Harrison St., Oak Park, IL from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. The Eastgate is right in the heart of Oak Park's charming Arts District and the owners are active members of the Arts Community. Its layout was inspired by French and German coffee house and bistros where writers, artists, politicians and community leaders would gather to exchange ideas while enjoying gourmet fare. The food at the Eastgate is prepared from the finest and freshest local ingredients and ranges from vegetarian choices such as salads, fish, quiche and pasta to grilled hamburgers, Hungarian sausage, beef goulash, pizza and more. There is a full bar including wines, beers and cordials. Mixed drinks are also available as are a choice of classic desserts.

There's NO entrance fee BUT attendees are expected to pay for drinks and/or food before or during the presentation. To learn more about the Eastgate, please click on this link
